Be sure to give a detailed description of how the data will be used and include the names and email addresses of the Principal Investigator (PI) and all data users who will have access to the dataset.

protect confidentiality, the Oregon BRFSS annual public use data files
exclude county code, zip code and any other data element which might allow
identification of a respondent. Persons needing these data elements should
contact the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Research Data Center
We make no exceptions to this policy.
A public use county file which combines and
reweights four years of annual Oregon BRFSS data is available for
county-level analysis. The county file is to be used only for generating
county-level estimates for the entire four-year period; any attempt to generate
county-level results by year will yield inaccurate results.
Due to staff being reassigned to the COVID-19 response and increased volume of data requests, it may take up to six to eight weeks to fulfill requests for survey data.
